Bust-out Rodeo next Saturday, crib coming to an end after a few games at the drop-in

Big Valley Bulletin

The Big Valley Legion will be holding a meeting at 2 p.m. on Monday, April 4 at the Legion Hall.

Last week’s surprise “gifts” from Mother Nature resulted in the cancellation of the March 22 Elk’s annual “Past Exalted Ruler” night. This event has been rescheduled for April 5 at the Rumsey Hall. Oysters are on the menu.

Minor ball registrations have been out and there has been a pretty good response from the kids wanting to play ball this year. Anyone who hasn’t already sent in their registration is urged to please do so as soon as possible so that teams can be determined. Also, a junior high mixed slo-pitch program (grades 6-9) is in the works. If you are interested in this pilot program or for more information regarding minor ball, please call Alana at 403-876-2247.

Remember to join us here in Big Valley for our “Bust-out Rodeo” on Friday, April 8 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, April 9 at 6 p.m. at the Big Valley Agriplex. Stay for the dance Saturday night following the rodeo. Don’t forget, the Colin Cassidy Memorial Rodeo is on Wednesday, Apr. 6 at 7 p.m.
